I took up bear making for a few hours this weekend... by few I mean about 10. I got Gabrielle's bits and pieces at the Townsville Craft Fair from Brentwood Bears and started yesterday at dodgily sewing her. So, now she isn't a pile of fur and parts... she's a little bear! Surprisingly, she is actually holding together too!
I have always wanted to make a teddy bear but I am so challenged when it comes to sewing its not funny. If you had to have a license to use a sewing machine they would take me aside, sit me down and distract me while someone raids my house and smashes my machine into a million little pieces! Want an example? Last night I got my head so close to the machine the little silver bit that goes up and down near the top of the machine hit me in the forhead!
You know, from this picture she actually looks pretty good. To be honest I am rather proud... thank goodness for the fur... it was horrible to sew when you have no sewing experience but it hides all the flaws! I am so glad that no one ever needs to see what it really looks like on the inside!
